I have come to understand that it is not enough to simply be born-again by the Spirit. The truth is, our spirits are regenerated, our souls are being renewed and our bodies are becoming a living sacrifice.
Many people have prayed the sinner’s prayer and accepted Jesus as Savior who continue to live their lives out of their souls or the carnal dictates of the flesh.
My concern is, what will happen when they wake up at the end of the day and discover that most of their life has been lived around the need for provision, protection and recognition?
(In Messiah Yahshua)
2 Corinthians 13:5-6 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Yahshua Messiah is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test! I hope you will find out that we have not failed the test. ESV
2 Peter 1:10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. ESV
> My understanding is established in the Eternal Now.
> My Theology is Kingdom
> My Doctrine is the practical application thereof.
Note: It is important to know where you are in relationship to where you are going.

Understanding the trichotomy of man
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 – Now may the Elohim of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Sovereign Yahshua Messiah. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. ESV
The tripartite man – Spirit , Soul & Body
“We are a spirit being, we have a soul and we live in a body”
Spirit – Life or Breath of Yahweh
Note: The spirit of man is the part that is most like Yahweh. The son in him responds to the voice and word of the Spirit.
Titus 3:1-7 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of Elohim our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Yahshua Messiah our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Soul – Mind, Will & Emotions
Note: The soul of man is what gives us individual identity. The orphan in him reacts to his environment and outside influences.
Colossians 1:21-22 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, ESV
Body – Temple, Earth tuxedo, Vehicle
Note: The body is the part that gives us mobility, sensory perception and human experiences. The body is subject to both the spirit and the soul of man.
Romans 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of Yahweh, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to Yahweh, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of Yahweh, what is good and acceptable and perfect. ESV
